Nga Kete Matauranga

Author(s): Jacinta Ruru & Linda Waimarie Nikora (editors)

NZ Non Fiction

In this beautiful and transformative book, 24 Māori academics share their personal journeys, revealing what being Māori has meant for them in their work. Their perspectives provide insight for all New Zealanders into how mātauranga is positively influencing the Western-dominated disciplines of knowledge in the research sector.It is a shameful fact, says co-editor Jacinta Ruru in her introduction to Ngā Kete Mātauranga, that in 2020, only about 5 percent of academic staff at universities in Aotearoa New Zealand are Māori. Tertiary institutions have for the most part been hostile places for Indigenous students and staff, and this book is an important call for action. It is well past time that our country seriously commits to decolonising the tertiary workforce, curriculum and research agenda, writes Professor Ruru.
